Mixed basil pesto
This pesto is made with a mix of sweet basil, Greek basil, Thai basil and cinnamon basil – a taste sensation.
mixed basil pesto
- 1 lemon juice only
- 2 cloves garlic
- 200 g fresh basil as many kinds as you can get
- 100 ml cold-pressed oil
for the pesto
Juice the lemon into a small bowl and crush in the garlic. Set aside to cure for 20 minutes.
Put the basil and lemon-cured garlic in a food processor and blend to break down the leaves. Drizzle in enough olive oil to make a loose paste, scraping down as necessary (you might need more or less oil).
Season well – this is really important to bring out the flavours of the basil.
